Since the beginning of the year, Ripple (XRP)’s price changes have been moving at a plodding pace despite the company’s growing popularity in the world of financial technology. Global investors, financial institutions, banking firms, celebrities, market analysts have already put their weight behind Ripple in its quest to revolutionize the face of cross-border settlements.
Although the prices of XRP have remained unchanged for a long time, exchanging at around 0.25 US dollars for weeks, a section of crypto analysts believes some endorsements will soon start reflecting in the price value of Ripple’s default currency, XRP.
One crypto analysist going by the Twitter name @XRPBitcoin predicts Ripple will soon start witnessing a massive price upsurge that will see the crypto coin settling on the 7 US dollar price level. Through his Twitter page, @XRPBitcoin tweeted:
According to many, @XRPBitcoin’s Ripple XRP prediction seems to be a very far-fetched target for the crypto token to reach the 7 US dollar mark this year, but in an industry such as this, anything is possible, and it will be wrong to rule out his argument completely.
History Gives Clues to this Predictions
According to Ripple (XRP)’s price chart, Ripple’s crypto token has bottomed out. On looking at its chart, it is evident that there isn’t much room for the virtual token to fall beyond its current value because the 0.25 US dollar mark appears to be a healthy historical support level for the crypto asset.
On looking at the overall price chart, it is clear that Ripple’s current situation is indeed the bottom if we do not consider the consolidation base the crypto asset experienced before the last significant price surge that peaked on 3rd January above the 3 US dollar level.
According to experts who are examining the claims of the Twitter crypto analyst, @XRPBitcoin, the natural progression of Ripple prices should be upwards from its previous baseline if there aren’t any exterior manipulating factors messing things up.
Although the 7 US dollar prediction might seem to be farfetched crypto followers should expect great things coming from Ripple’s XRP in the coming days and weeks.
